They were recently named the Quartet in Residence for the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.

The Attacca Quartet is now in its eleventh season, having been formed at the Juilliard School in 2003. They made their professional debut in 2007 as part of the Artists International Winners Series in Carnegie Hall's Weill Recital Hall. They recently recorded the complete string quartet works of John Adams for Azica Records, which was released to great acclaim in March 2013. 2014-2015 marks the fifth season in New York and the second season in Ontario of "The 68," an ambitious project in which the Attacca Quartet will perform all sixty-eight Haydn string quartets on a special series they have created and self-produce. They have been honored with the 2013 National Federation of Music Clubs Centennial Chamber Music Award, the Arthur Foote Award from the Harvard Musical Association, and the Lotos Prize in the Arts. The Attacca Quartet is represented by Baker Artists, LLC.
